Cleveland Clinic strives to make scientific advances that will benefit patient care and support outside relationships that promise public benefit.

This practice has been efficient & attentive in my treatment. I am 97 years old and active. My medical condition has caused me considerable fatigue. My doctors in Columbus have not provided a treatment plan to treat my condition. I think it is because I am 'too old' in their view. Dr Tanaka gave me a treatment plan. She also gave me hope, saying she looks not at the patient's age but at their overall functioning/wellness in determining a treatment plan.
